Know Now Then
Up Up Up Up Up Up 1999

It's not so much that we got closer
it's that her face just got bigger
and by the time it was filling up my whole view
i figured my face had got bigger too
so i used it to try and sway her
say something to her
make my case
but my face
never had a chance
all along it was the wrong song and dance
i just stood there
without even a stance
helpless to her advance
and her retreat
backspace, delete
it wasn't so much that we fell in love as
my life just seemed to come down
to a slow walk on a straight line
between her smile and her frown
and maybe we never were as close
as we should have been
but i didn't know what i know now, then
yeah, i didn't know what i 
know now, then
